FOREWORD 

The Flat Creek 3aptist Church Minutes are records of the church 
proceedings of a local congregation. They are private records of the 
local church, recorded for future reference within that church only, and 
never intended as a public document. Often, they are of a very sacred 
nature as they record, many times, individual confessionals. They also 
reveal sensitive information relative to church discipline or the 
settling of differences between members. 

Early Baptists adhered strictly to the New Testament teaching that 
a Christian should settle differences with a Christian brother or sister 
within the covenant fellowship of the local church, not in the civil 
courts. More than being replete with the religious history of a 
mountain Baptist community, these records contain historical information 
on individuals, families, and community life that cannot be found in the 
public records. 

The abstracting of Baptist church minutes is a most serious and 
demanding task, more exacting than transcribing journals of a Morgan 
Edwards or a Bishop Asbury. It requires an understanding of the nature 
of Baptist life and polity, a sensitive intellect about what is private 
and what is public, and a pragmatic scholarship to documentation — the 
leaving of tracks for retracing the path of the abstractor's process. 

Mrs. Morgan has achieved, to a significant degree, each of these 
prerequisites for evolving private records into a public document. 
Without published guidelines or printed models , she has established a 
precedent with this publication by being sensitive to the nature of her 
material , and still making it user oriented without violating the 
original spirit and intent of these minutes, even retaining the diverse 
spellings of a single name. 

In the original , the spelling of words varied from clerk to clerk 
and was never made consistent since they were read, corrected, and 
approved orally. To these Christians spelling was not a prerequisite 
for accuracy, for truth was truth no matter how it was spelled. Mr. 
John Angus McLeod, a Baptist historian, once said, "a truly educated 
person should be able to spell a word more than one way," and "never let 
the facts get in the way of the truth." Such was the nature of these 
mountain Baptists and the Flat Creek Baptist Church Minutes .

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS vii 

My gratitude and sincere appreciation are extended to the following 
people . Without them this work would have been impossible . 

Richard Dillingham, Director of the Southern Appalachian Center, 
Mars Hill College, Mars Hill, North Carolina, gave me encouragement, 
advice, counsel and guidance. He shared with me his broad knowledge of 
the Baptists and the Baptist Churches in this area. He was never too 
busy to listen and advise . 

Robert R. Barnes so generously gave his time and talent to create 
the cover design. It has been a great privilege to become acquainted 
with this talented and unusual man. 

Clark's Printing Service was most cooperative and interested in the 
production of this book. Patricia "Pat" Harwood, Sales Representative 
and Manager of the Copy Shop, took such a deep personal interest and 
without her we would not have had a product of such quality. 

Many thanks are due the people of Flat Creek Church for maintaining 
and preserving these records, and. for recognizing and appreciating 
their value and significance. 

Deana K. Dillingham typed the manuscript. Without her this book 
would have never been completed. She developed the format and did many 
more tasks too great to enumerate. She gave unselfishly of her time and 
her knowledge of historical documentation was invaluable. 

My husband, Harry C. Morgan, is the great-great grandson of the 
Reverend Stephen Morgan. His interest, moral support, and great sense 
of humor kept Deana and me going through long and tedious hours .

INTRODUCTION xiii 

In January of 1985 while working on the family history of the 
Reverend Stephen Morgan I was told about a microfilm at Pack Memorial 
Library, Asheville , North Carolina. This film contains the minutes of 
the Flat Creek Baptist Church , Weaverville , North Carolina , from 
1833-1931. The church, located in the Flat Creek Community of north 
Buncombe County, was established in 1811 with the Reverend Stephen 
Morgan as its founding minister. 

Several people urged me to abstract these minutes so that they 
might be more readily accessible to a greater number of people. This 
volume is the result. 

The minutes were microfilmed by the Historical Commission of the 
Southern Baptist Convention, Nashville, Tennessee. Most of the abstrac- 
tion was done from a personal copy procured from the commission. 

Preceding the minutes on the microfilm is a copy of pages 34 and 35 
from History of The French Broad Baptist Association by Reverend John 
Ammons. Neither my copy of the microfilm nor the copy at Pack Library 
are archivally certified. 

By permission of the church and accompanied by the church clerk, 
Mrs. Nan McLean Keith, I was allowed to examine the original minutes in 
the church's safe deposit box. From my observations there appear to be 
no inconsistencies between the original and the microfilm records. 

More than a record of proceedings , these minutes are a history of a 
people, their relationships to each other, to their church and the 
community, reflecting the place and the times in which they lived. 

For the sake of brevity it was necessary to eliminate extraneous 
material. Included are membership lists, church doctrine and ordi- 
nances, customs and sacraments, finances, structures and buildings, 
organizations, affiliations with associations and the larger church, and 
all names of people, places, publications, documents, events and groups. 
Also included are interactions with other churches , other people and the 
community. 

At the time the first log building was erected, Buncombe County 
encompassed all of the area west of Burke and Rutherford Counties. Only 
two Baptist churches in what is now Buncombe County, Newfound Baptist 



xiv 

Church, 1802, and Cane Creek Baptist Church, 1805, (now Fairview Baptist 

Church), are older than the Flat Creek Baptist Church. 

Through war and peace, prosperity and depression, Flat Creek Baptist 
Church has progressed from a primitive log building to a modern brick 
structure containing the sanctuary, classrooms, offices, fellowship hall 
and a large well-equipped kitchen. Presently church membership is 289. 

With steadfast purpose and strong unwavering faith, this church and 
its people have proven themselves as enduring as the mountains that 
beckoned their founding fathers , a lasting tribute to its ministers , 
officers, members, and the faith they lived.

BRO A BALL, who born in IREDELL COUNTY NC June 27th 1796 Came to 
BUNCOMBE COUNTY with his parents when very young professed faith in 
Christ and joined the BAPTIST CHURCH at LITTLE IVY in May of 1844, 
where he remained a member untill he united with the church at FLAT 
CREEK Oct 4th 1856 where he lived a consistent member (with out 
accusition) untill his death which occured Feb. 16th 1880, aged 83 
years 7 months and 19 days Month after month has he plodded his way 



167 
1880 

to the house of God leaning upon his Staff with the one hand and the 
grace of God with the other his general expression Seemed to be that 
of the poet "0 for a closer walk with God, A. calm and heavenly 
frame" Thus he lived through lifes' weary pilgramage, untill he as 
we believe was called up higher and leaving a long train of friends 
and relatives and a vacant Seat within these walls, and his Staff on 
the mountains' brow he took his eternal exit to that haven of bliss 

Where the righteous cease from and the weary are at rest "Thus 

he's gone far above With angels there to dwell There to Sing redeem- 
ing Love The heavenly chorus to Swell"

W S ROBERTS CC 

***** 

Died the 28th of June 1883 CORNELA SAMES, consort of JAMES H. SAMES 
of BUNCOMBE COUNTY N. C. The Decest was the daughter of DR. B. B. 
WHITTINGTON & MARGARET WHITTINGTON of YANCY COUNTY M. C. Our deed, 
sister was Thirty years, seven months and twenty days old. She pro- 
fessed religion and joined the BAPTIST CHURCH at CANE RIVER in her 

/ Thirteenth year and had lived a consistent Christian life. 

Married July 19th 1869. She had lived with her husband thirteen 
years eleven months and nine days. For four years our beloved 
sister had been a great sufferer, but in all her sufferings she 
manifested a spirit of meekness and patience. She often said to 
her husband that were it not for him and CORA (which was their 
little daughter) she would gladly welcome death. SISTER SAMES was a 
devoted wife a tender, but faithful Mother, a good neighbor, and 
more, an earnest warm hearted Christian. The writer knew the 
departed sister when she was a mere child, and now while his pen 
traces these lines his thoughts go back to the time when in her 
fathers family little CORNELIA with the dignity of one of more 
mature years mooved noislessly about the angel of the houshold. One 
only needed to know her to be drawn to her - lovely in her nature 
She- was beloved by all who knew her; and loved most by those who 
knew her best. But she is gon , - gon from us; but only gon from the 
evil to come. Her last illness was veary brief. During that time 
she seemed to be fully conscious of her approaching end. As she 
neared the close she talked freely with the friends, and relations 
present and gave her dying directions to her husband in regard to her 

children / pleading that he raise them togeather as Sister and 

brother; and then in calm, firm, sweet reliance upon Him who is 
afflicted in all the afflictions of His people She passed away from 
us to be with Jesus. Yes, she fell asleep in Jesus - and while the 



193 
1884 

bereaved mourn her absence , yet there is this strong consolation 
given that she who now appears lost to us is at home with the Lord 
At home with the Lord: There is no Sickness, Sorrow, pain, tears, 
no death, but life eternal, and everlasting felicity. 
"Asleep in Jesus blessed sleep. From which none ever wakes to weep. 
A calm and undisturbed repose. Unbroken by the last of foes."

Again we as a church are called upon to record the death of one of 
our dear Sisters. SISTER DARCUS L. LANKFORD, wife of JOSEPH 
LANKFORD and daughter of JOSEPH P. and TABITHA ROBERTS of BUNCOMBE 
CO. N. C. SISTER LANKFORD was bornd April 1st 1856. Died Nov. 13th 
1883 Aged 27 years 7 months and 12 days. She professed faith in 
Christ when about 16 years old and joined the church at FLAT CREEK 
and was baptized by ELDER W. T. BRADLEY March 31st 1872. From the 
time of her uniting with the church to her death it was visable to 
the world that she was living for Christ. She was married April 
12th 1879 and lived 4 years and 7 months. She had been afflicted 
about two years , during which she often talked to her companion of 
her hopes of a better life. Her last illness was veary brief and 

[she] exclaimed that she was going to rest. / Leaving her 

husband and two dear children and many kindred and friends to mourn 
her absence.

***** 

Died on the 21st of May 1884 at her residence on FLAT CREEK N. C. 
HAMOLEKETH ELLER wife of J. C. ELLER. Our deceast sister was the 
daughter of the late REV. ROBERT PATTERSON and LEAH PATTERSON. Was 

born June 15 1842. Professed religion and joined the FORKS OF IVY 
BAPTIST CHURCH in her twelveth year. About the age of fourteen She 
became a member of FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH where she lived a 
faithful member up to her death being 41 years 1 1 months and 24 days 
old. About 18 years before her death she became phisically afflic- 
ted / that caused her the most intence sufering. Thus she lived 

for 1 1 years when she became mentally diseased and having lost her 
health and mind she lived for 7 years refusing to be comforted only 
by reading Gods word it being her only source of comfort & joy. But 
while her affliction was slowly prducing death she was not unmindful 
of her wicked and irreligious family for whom she often prayed, 
hoping her petitions would find a lodgment on God's alter & be 
answered in Mercy and Pardon. The life of the decast was that of a 
faithful and pious Christian doeing good to all arround her. But 
like Righteous Lot her soul was vxed from day to day with the wicked 
deeds of those with whom she was connected. But she remarked just 
before she expired that the Lord would not leave her and that all 
was well. But she passed away leaving an aged Mother a husband & 4 
children with relatives S friends to mourn their loss and to battle 
with the evils of this life while (as we beleave ) she is basking in 
the sunlight of Gods love where disease and troubles are no more 
Where her Souls at peace wil_h God through the atonement given 
wearing a Saints spotless robe Triumphant up in heaven.

BRO H J ROBERTS was born Dec 11th 1858 professed faith in Christ 
joined the BAPTIST CHURCH at FLAT CREEK and was baptised in to the 
fellowship of this church August 22nd 1881 from which time to his 
death which occured Jan 29th 1885 he lived an orderly Christian life 
giving satisfactory evidence to his friends and relatives of his 
preparation for death and a final Judgement by expressing a willing- 
ness to depart this life though at the youthful age of 26 years 6 
months and 20 days and while his friends and relativs mourn their 
loss we hope he is reaping the reward of the finally faithful at the 
end of the run

Obituary of P D BALL Decst Died on the 1st of Sept. 1885 SISTER 
PAGEY D BALL at the advanced age of 80 years 4 months & 19 days. 
She joined the church in 1842. Lived a consistant & divoted member 
for 43 years. Her life was a life that characterized a true wor- 
shiper. Just before she expired she talked with those present 



204 
1885 



about her prospects of heaven with the request that they should meet 
her there. While we feeld sad for our loss of the departed one, yet 
we feeld that we are honored that one of our number was counted 
worthy of a transfere from this to the church triumphant

Obituary (of SALLIE ROBERTS) 

Who died on the 2nd day of July 1886. SISTER SALLIE ROBERTS was 
consort of MR. J G ROBERTS and daughter of BRO JACOB ALLHAN decst. & 
SISTER MARY ALLMAN. The deceast was 42 years 10 months & 24 days 
old when she departed this life. She lived a consist [ent] member of 
FLAT CREEK BAPTIS[T] CHURCH for more than 20 yea[rs] SISTER ROBERTS 
was a devoted compainon an affectionate Mother. But her bereaved 
family is deprived of her divotion, but we trust that their bereave- 
ment will be turned to Joy by a reuniting of husband & wife Mother & 
children in eternal bliss 

J H SANES W S ROBERTS / 



Obituary of SISTER L TAYLOR 

SISTER LAVINA TAYLOR departed this life October 15th 1886, in the 
75th year of her age, She, according to the best authority we have, 
became a member of FLAT CREEK CHURCH about 50 years ago and was 
until her death, one of the most consistant and exemplary members of 
our church. For some time before her death, SISTER TAYLOR was con- 
fined to a bed of suffering, which with her extream poverty made 
this life a hard one to her and anything but pleasent and desirable; 
but as we have been credibly informed, she endured her sufferings 
with Christian- patience and fortitude, and patiently but anxiously 
awaited that deliverance which is in store for the humble follows of 
Jesus. She told her friends just before her death, that she was 
going to rest, and requested her children to meet her in heaven. 
Let us thank. God, brethren and sisters, for the thought that another 
of our number has been victorious and is gone to rest from her 
labors .

Obituary of BROTHER STEPHEN MORGAN 

Who departed this life July 23rd 1896. Born Nov. 1st 1809 Age 
eighty-six years eight months and 22 days professed faith in 
Christ the ninth year of his age an joined the church at FLAT 
CREEK in the twenty second year of his age In the year 1832 and 
lived a faithful and devoted member of the same until death 
making him a member of the church sixty four years. He was 
ordained a deacon of the church June the 3rd 1837 and served as a 
faithful deacon of the church fifty nine years. He was married 
to JANE BUCKNER in the 22 year of his age and there was born unto 



261 

1896-1897 

them ten children He lived with her thirty six years and she 

died in full triumph of a liveing faith leaving him and the 

children to morn her departure. In 1867 January 1st he was 

married to REACBEL MILES and lived with her thiry years a more 

devoted husbon and a loving father to children never lived. He 

lived religion every day as a living epistle read and known of 

all around him. He talked it by the wayside at home at the 

church at his neighbors houses. We have of times seen him shout 

and praise God in church in his home and in the field when about 

the daily avocation of life in all his relation with the church 

there were never naught brought against him in over 50 year. He 

never missed a church meeting I have often heard him say the 

grate success of a flourishing church was the faithful attendence 

of the church members at the church meetings Oh how he will be 

missed at Old FLAT CREEK but he has gone to reap that reward that 

remains for the people of God. He leaves a dear wife and three 

children and a large number of grandchildren and friends to mourn 

his departure but we have no doubt but their loss is his eternal 

gain .

Obituary of SISTER RACHEL ROBERTS 

MRS. RACHEL M ROBERTS was born May 25 1837 and died July 28th 
1899; aged 62 years 2 months and 3 days SISTER ROBERTS Professed 
religion at FLAT CREEK CHURCH in 1862 under the preaching of BRO 
GLADSON PICKENS and ET.T.ER She attached herself to the Baptist 
church about that time in which she lived a faithful and devoted 
Christian till her death about the year 1874 she becam weakly and 
for the last 25 years shw has been a confirmed invalid On June 
28 last she became much worse. Two weeks before her death she 
told her doctor that she wanted nothing more to prolong her life 
as she only wanted to pass away to her Jesus whom she had loved 
and served and about that time she told her [devo]ted husband 



276 
1900 

that she did not want him to pray for her to get well but pray- 
that she might go easy and as the time drew nearer she seemed 
more anxious to go. She said I have begged and pled for four 
long weeks that every breath might be the last and still later 
she said: blessed Lord take me; sweete Jesus take me. At the 
request of her devoted husband BRO ERVIN F. ROBERTS she was 
visited almost every day till her death by her doctor. Of all 
the watchfullness and kindness ever bestowed on any one in this 
world none ever exceled that of her husband and her sister and a 
niece a daughter of BRO ANDREW ROBERTS, who remained with her to 
the last. 

Her remains were interred at MT. ZION CHURCH where her funeral 
was Preached by REV JOHN AMMONS who did as near Justes to here as 
could be done to such a woman in this world thus had passed away 
one of the best Christians of one of the best wives one of the 
best women and one of the best neighbors this /167 world has 
ever lost. 

[At this point the microfilm repeats from page 95, 31 October 1891 to 
page 167 above, a total of 73 pages.] 

And now to her dear husband while he is so lonely, I would say 
god does all things for the best. Fight on a little longer. You 
will see Dear RACHEL agan. While the sweete autumn flouer are 
bending o'er her tomb, while the sweete music of MT. ZION CHURCH 
is wafted over her las resting place hear Dear departed spirit is 
a round you as a guarding angle and she singing the sweete songs 
of Moses and the Lamb. She has taken shelter under the great 
rock whoes smitten side give to all God's children through life's 
desert way Farewell dear Sister wee will meet you again. /168

Obituary of SISTER MANERVA E ALLMON 

Who departed this life Sept 3rd 1903 She was born Jan 21st 1848 
in BUNCOMBE CO N. C- professed faith in Christ and joined the 
BAPTIST CHURCH at BETHEL while quite young She was married to 
BRO L ALLMON Jan 3rd 1867 Soon after attached her self to this 
church of which she was a member until her death. Always showing 
her Sincerity of her proffession by her Christain walk and Godly 
conversation faithful to her every Christain duty We can truly 
say that her example is beautiful to follow by her children of 
which she left thirteen living to mourn their Great loss. We 
hope her children and many friends may be [blank left by 
clerk] by their sad bereavement of the great meeting of a througs 
prepration to meet her in that Blessed land where there is no 
more parting. Respectfully Sub.

Obituary of SISTER NANCY J KILPATRICK 

On July 24th 1907 the death Angel took from our midst SISTER 
NANCY J KILPATRICK. She lived to the ripe old age 80 years 8 
months and 24 days. Sixty years of which she spent in the ser- 
vice of the Master Having united with the COOPERS GAP BAPTIST 
CHURCH in the year 1847 from which she moved her membership to 
BIG IVY CHURCH in 1867 of which she remained a member for a 
period of 19 years uniting with FLAT CREEK CHORCH in 1886 where 
she remained a loyal member until her departure. 

SISTER KILPATRICK was a worthy and much esteemed member of her 
church and through her pious life won the utmost confidence and 
respect of those with whom she come in contact. During her short 
illness of only a few hours she expressed entire resignation to 
the will of the God whom she served. While her place in church 
and in the home is vacant she 3till lives in the hearts of those 
she has left behind. She is gone but we will not think of her as 
one dead, nor will we feel so sad over the separation but will 
look up with an eye of faith and see her in beautiful white robes 
walking with Jesus and mingling with loved ones gone on before. 
In her home she was an Ideal Christian mother, Therefore be it 
resolved 1st That while we the FLAT CREEK CHURCH sincerely lament 
our sad loss Yet we bow in humble submission to Him who doeth all 
things well 2nd That FLAT CREEK CHURCH has lost one of its faith- 
ful members One who done what she could for her church and for 



306 
1907-1908 



the cause of Christ /215 3rd That we tender our heartfelt sym- 
pathy to the sorrowing relatives and point them to the God whom 
she loved.

***** 

On Sept 22nd 1909 God in His unerring Wisdoom removed from our 
midst SISTER MINNIE WILLIAMS in her Forty fifth year She was the 
wife of CALAWAY WILLIAMS and Daughter of MR and MRS PETER A. 
REDMON. In her death FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH has lost a 
faithful member. To the Husband and surviving children upon 
whose hearts the blow falls so heavily we extend our deepest 
sympathy. The bereaved family mourn SISTER WILLIAMS death not 
becaus they have any fear concerning her eternal welfare but 
because it is so hard to give up one so pure in heart. She had 
all faith in her Creator and was perfectly reconciled to His 
will. She was a devoted Christain, a Loving Mother and an 
affectionate wife. To know her was to love her. In the cemetery 
at FLAT CREEK she sweetly rests awaiting the Beautiful Dawn of 
the Resurrection day. Therefore we submissively bow to His will. 
For He is too loving to err too righteous to be unkind.

ELLIOT 

On Oct 30th 1909 God in his Infinite Wisdom removed from our 
midst SISTER BERTHA ELLIOTT Daughter of MR and MRS WESLEY ELLIOT. 
She professed faith in Christ and united with the FLAT CREEK 
BAPTIST CHURCH in her Thirteenth year and remained a consistent 
member until her Death. She was just nineteen years old in the 
full flush and prime of young womanhood and with a future beaming 
with hope and promise when God called her /229 from the church 
militant to join the Great Church Triumphant. 

BERTHA was a very bright girl endowed with a splendid mind 
which she seemed most eager and anxious to develop. Having 
attended the NORMAL COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE ASHEVILLE N. C. two 
sessions where she was making fine progress. She was best known 
in the community of her own home where she enjoyed the confidence 
and esteem of her associated and companions among whom whe was a 



316 
1909-1910 



great favorite. In this tribute to her memory we do not hope to 
dispel the sorrow and grief that weighs so heavily upon her loved 
ones, but that we hope to bring some comfort and consolation in 
this their hour of deep affliction. We can only point them to 
BERTHA'S Christ. When in a blissful Heavenly Reunion they meet, 
then the unfolding of Gods purpos will be made known, and the 
blow which now seems so crushing will be forever soothed. There- 
fore we submit to the Divine Will of Him who doeth all things 
well. MISS BERTIE ROBINSON

GOLDSMITH 

On Sept 10th 1909 God in his allwise providence removed from 
earth to Heaven the Spirit of SISTER MOLLIE GOLDSMITH in the 
Thirty seventh year of her age . She was the wife of ZEB GOLD- 
SMITH and Daughter of J. H. and RACHEL MILLER and grand [ da ]ughter 
of the REV JOSEPH MILLER. Early in life she profesed faith in 
Christ and united with the BETHEL /230 BAPTIST CHURCH. She 
lived a pious life, was a loving companion and an affectionate 
Mother. She leaves many friends and ralatives who lament her re- 
moval But we will not think of her as one that is dead, but as 
one whose Spirit lives with the Angels in Glory while her body 
sleeps peacefully in the BETHEL CEMETERY awaiting the Glorious 
appearing of the Ressurection Day. Therefore we the FLAT CREEK 
BAPTIST CHURCH with which her stay was so brief, do sincerely de- 
plore her departure. But bow in humble submission to the Will of 
our Heavenly. Father in removing our sister to her Eternal Abode, 
where flowers are forever blooming and extend to the sorrowing 
Husband Children, Father Sisters, and Brother our Sympathy and 
love and pray they may have the consolation of the Holy Spirit to 
comfort them. Committee

Obituary of SISTER CORA DUCK 

On the Solemn night of Jan 19th a gloom was cast over the home of 
MR and MRS J. C. DUCK when borne on the Pinions of the Heavenly 
Messenger the Spirit of their Daughter and our beloved SISTER 
CORA took its flight to the Eternal world of beauty. SISTER CORA 
answered the Solemn call at the young age of a few days less 
than Fifteen years. Why a loving Heavenly Father called her 
hence at so tender an age we can-not understand . But we bow in 
humble submission to the will of him that doeth all things well 
and remember that all things work together for good to them that 
love the Lord. Nearly two year^ ago SISTER CORA professed faith 
in Christ and united with FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH of which she 
remained a worthy member during the brief space of the remainder 
of her earthly life. In her death the home has lost one of its 
brightest jewels. The parents a loving and obedient daughter, 
The Brothers and Sister an affectionate Sister, The church a 
faithful member, and the community a quiet and sweet spirited 
girl. Therefore we the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH tender our 
sincere sympathies to the relatives and friends of the deceased, 
/242 and point them to CORA'S God. 

The funeral was conducted from the church by Pastor REV E. 
ALLISON and BROTHER PROFIT of the M E CHURCH

On Oct 28th 1912 God in His unering Wisdom called from our midst 
BRO J W ELLIOT at the prime age of 46 years 3 months and 26 days 
Having been borned July 2nd 1866. BRO ELLIOT professed faith in 
Christ and united with the FREE WILL BAPTIST CHURCH at the age of 
17 years of which he remained a member until he united with the 
MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH at FLAT CREEK some eight or nine years 
ago of which he was a member when God called him hence. A 

companion and [blank in obituary] children survive him to 

whom we the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH tender our deepest sympa- 
thies and unite with them in deploring his departure Yet we bow 
in humble submission to the will of Him who giveth and taketh 
away and doeth all things well

On March 22 1913 our hearts were made sad by the death of our 
friend MISS BESSIE KEITH who was borned July 31, 1888 She pro- 
fessed faith in Christ while in school at MARS HILL in her Six- 
teenth year. Afterwards she moved her membership to FLAT CREEK 
CHURCH where she remained a consistent member until her death. 
The children all loved MISS BESSIE for they recognized her as a 
true friend. Having taught school near her home for two years she 
gained the love and friendship of all her students which will 
never be forgotten. She was ever ready and willing to help any 
one she saw in need. Although MISS BESSIE had a long siege of 
Sickness and endured much suffering she bore it with patience, 
always welcoming her visitors and /23 expressing a tranquil 
trust in her Divine Redeemer to any one who mentioned anything 
concerning her wellfare. To a very dear friend of hers she 
remarked during her sickness "although I would like to get well 
but if it is Gods will I am ready and willing to go" Truly she 
will be greatly missed by all who knew her but our Father had 
other work for her to do and took her to himself. "There we 
shall find our treasures all awaiting where change and death and 
parting never come"

SISTER MARY E TAYLOR wife of J. D. TAYLOR was borned Sept 12 1858 
in SOUTH CAROLINA and departed this life April 10, 1913 Daughter 
of IVORY COFFEE and T. A. COFFEE, came to NORTH CAROLINA when 
about fourteen years old Professed faith in Christ when about 
Sixteen years of age Was Baptised by ELDER JAMES HOOKER Oct 1 1 
1874 Married March 3, 1882 to J. D. TAYLOR. To this union was 
born Seven children four sons and three Daughters. She was a 
devoted wife A loving Mother and Stepmother a kind neighbor. 
Last but not least a consecrated Christian. She loved her church 
and was faithful in attendence when she was able. She was always 
pleased to have her Pastors and friends visit her. The home is 
lonly without her /24 but she is gone to be with Jesus and 
loved ones which is far better and now she sleeps the blessed 
sleep from which none ever wake to weep. Dear relatives and 
friends let us not sorrow as do others who have no hope, "For if 
we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also who 
sleep in Jesus will God bring with him 1st Thes 4; 14". "We 
shall sleep but not for ever There will be a glorious dawn."

NANCY E TAYLOR Daughter of MR and MRS DAVID BYRES was Born Aug 1 3 
1851 was married to J R TAYLOR in Jan of 1873 united with the 
BILLS CREEK BAPTIST CHORCH RUTHERFORD COUNTY in the year 1873 
Later with the FLAT CREEK CHURCH of which she was a faithful and 
devoted member for many years but having moved her membership to 
WEAVERVILLE [CHURCH] she returned to FLAT CREEK a short time 
before her death. SISTER TAYLOR was well known in her community 
as a woman of great energy and perseverance. Was kind and hos- 
pitable in her home. Delighted to have her friends and espe- 
cially her pastor visit her and many availed themselves of her 
kind hospitalities. She suffered long and much being ill for 
several months, but bore it with meekness and talked sweetly to 
her friends and attendents of her home over yonder. Said she was 
ready and willing to go, and early on the morning of Oct 2 1913 
her Saviour bade her come, and the silver chord was loosed and 
her happy spirit /25 passed peacefully into the Eternal Habita- 
tions of the Redeemed . She was conscious to the last and showed 
to a demonstration how tranquilly a Christian can cross the 
Jordan of death. "Precious in the sight of Jehova is the death 
of his Saints Psa 116; 15" We join with the relatives and friends 
in lamenting her departure, but submit to the Divine will A hus- 
band, Son, and six grand children survive her. To the husband we 
would say, where she is you may go. To the son prepare to meet 
your Mother in Heaven To the grand children, Grandmother is 
beconing from the portals on high come this way. The Funeral 
services were conducted by her pastor REV W. T. BRADLEY assisted 
by REV ALFRED BRADLEY Also REV WARREN of the M. E. CHURCH. The 
remains were inter ed in the CLARKS CHAPEL CEMETERY.

BROTHER CARL CHANDLER was born March 19 1894 and departed this 
life Jan 6 1915 at the tender age of Twenty years 9 months and 17 
days It pleased our Heavenly Father to keep him on the bed of 
affliction about three weeks but he bore his affliction through 
to the last with great patience. He was greatly loved by all who 
knew him and was loved /26 most by those who knew him best. As 
we try to bow in humble submission to the will of Him that doeth 
all things well, we cannot but feel that the death of one so 
beloved has left ac[h]es in our hearts that nothing but the 
healing balm of time can heal. BRO CHANDLER was a moddle young 
man with a character without blemish. He was kind and very 
obedient in his home all througfh] life, always trying to honor 
Father and Mother, and truly he was an honor to his home, his 
ocmmunity, and the church to which he belonged. On Aug 8 1909 he 
was Baptised and received into full fellowship with this the FLAT 



345 
1914 

CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH, having professed faith in Jesus the Saviour 
of the world some two years before. He remained a devoted member 
until his death. Always leting his light shine in such a way 
that one could see in his life that he had been with Jesus. He 
always met his associates with a kind word and a smile and was 
always ready to give good advice to those that might be inclined 
to err We sometimes wonder why it was that our Heavenly Father 
saw fit to take one so young and beloved from us. Then we 
remember that the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. He 
leaves behind to mourn their loss a Father, Mother, one Brother 
and five Sisters As a word of enco[u]ragement to the bereaved 
family, we would say profit by his life and put your trust in the 
one in whom he trusted, and may his death be to us all a steping 
stone to that house /27 of many mansions, where partings are 
known no more, and to his associates look on his life as a sign 
board that points to that better life, for he is not dead but has 
entered into life everlasting. May each of us be prepared to say 
"I shall know the loved who have gone before and joyfully sweet 
will the meeting be When over the river the peaceful river The 
Angel of death shall carry me" His body was laid in the LOCUST 
GROVE CEMETARY to await the sounding of the Trumpet that shall 
awake the dead in Christ first

On Dec 1st a gloom of intence sorrow and sadness was cast over 
the home of MR and MRS B. W. KEITH when the dread monster death 
came seemingly prematurely and claimed as his prey their son 
THERMON, at the prime age of 21 years 9 months and 26 days. The 
seemingly untimeliness of his death make it only the sadder. 
THERMON professed faith in Christ in the year 1909 and united 
with this the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH and was Baptised into 
full fellowship on Sept 5 of the above date, and remained a 
member until his death. THERMON was kindly disposed and was es- 
pecially devoted to his sister /28 BESSIE during her long 
illness preceding her death, which occured nearly two years ago. 
Our sympathies go out to the Father and Mother who are so sensi- 
tive of their loss and to the Brothers and Sisters so striken 
with grief. THERMON expressed his gratitude that the fatal wound 
did not bring instant death lest he should have been forever lost 
and said before he died that all was well with his soul. In his 
death we have the admonition "Be ye also ready" for the yound 
must die as well as the old.

SISTER HATTIE ELIZABETH WILLIAMS Daughter of MR and MRS WILLIAM 
DAVIS, and wife of SAMUEL WILLIAMS was Born Jan 30 1871 Died Aug 
2 1914 being 43 years 6 mo and 2 days old She was the mother of 
1 1 children 8 of whom survive her SISTER WILLIAMS professed faith 
in Christ at a meeting in BRITTAINS COVE conducted by BRO E. 
ALLISON the pastor of this church at that time and on March 5 
1911 she united with this the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH and was 
Baptised into full fellowship the same day. She remained a loyal 
member during the remainder of her earthly life. To the husband 
and surviving children upon whos hearth the blow falls so 
heavily, we extend our deepest sympathy. The bereaved family 
mourn SISTER WILLIAM death not because they have any fear 
concerning her Eternal wellfare /29 but becaus it is so hard to 
give up one so pure in heart. She had great faith in her Creator 
and was perfectly reconciled to His will. She was a devoted 
Christian, a loving Mother, and an affectionate companion. To 
know her was to love her . In the cemetary at FLAT CREEK she 
sweetly sleeps awaiting the beautiful Dawn of the Resurection 
day. Therefore we submissively bow to His will for he is too 
loving to err too righteous to be unkind.

J. D. TAYLOR Son of MR and MRS RICHARD TAYLOR was Born Nov 20, 
1850. He professed faith in Christ at about Twenty years of age 
and was Baptised into the fellowship of SALEM MISSIONARY BAPTIST 
CHURCH by BRO A. J. CORN. Late in the year 1878 he moved his 
membership to BOYLSTON CHURCH, TRANSYLVANIA CO Thence to FLAT 
CREEK in the year 1880 Later to PLEASANT BILL where he did 
efficient work as Choir Leader, Sunday School Teacher, Church 
Clerk, and in fact, all departments of the church work. He re- 
turned to FLAT CREEK some nine or ten years ago, where he proved 
himself a most worthy member through the remaining portion of his 
earthly life, His Transistion from earth to the land of the pure 
and blest occured on July 13 1916 at the age of 65 years 7 mo and 
23 days. 

BRO TAYLOR loved and respected his church, and his Pastor, and 
gave liberally of his means to their support. He delighted in 
the Sunday School and for many years taught a class of children, 
and this, was his great delight. He was a great lover of music 
and sang with the Spirit and understanding, But he is singing far 
more sweetly in that land of beauty and Song. He was especially 
kind and hospitable in his home , and it was a source of great 



357 

1916 

pleasure to him to have his friends and /44 especially his 
Pastor visit him. We lament his departure and speak of him as 
dead, But he has just entered into life, and Eehold, he liveth 
forevermore. It would not be just to fail to record, that he 
attended his church, his Sunday School, and the choir practice, 
through rain or shine, through mud and cold, and took an active 
part as long as his physical ability would permit. 

Twice married, 1st to MISS MINERVIA STUART, Oct 3, 1872 and 2nd 
to MISS MARY COFFEE on March 3rd, 1882, he became the Father of 
nine children all of whom save one with five Brothers and Two 
Sisters, survive him. Many friend[s] deplore his death. FLAT 
CREEK CHURCH has lost a loyal member , BUNCOMBE COUNTY one of her 
best citizens, and his children a devoted and affectionate 
father. May the Lord bless and sustain all, and especially his 
children, whom he loved so well, and to whom we tender our love 
and Sympahty. "Let us all watch and be ready for death may come 
when we least expect it" "Blessed are the dead that die in the 
Lord from henceforth yea sayeth th Spirit, That they may rest 
from their labors, and their works do follow them" Rev 14; 13 
The funeral services were conducted by his Pastor REV. w. T. 
BRADLEY, and the remains intered in the FLAT CREEK SEMETARY, 
awaiting the dawn of the Beautiful Resurrection morn.

SISTER ELLA BAILEY departed this life on the 6 day of June 1916 
at about the age of 35 years. She attached herself to this 
church by letter from TERRIES FORK BAPTIST CHURCH some seven or 
eight years ago and was a consistent member throughout her entire 
stay with us living the quiet Christian life that is becoming to 
all who claim to by children of God. She was meek, and met the 
trials and troubles of life in the humblest way, showing the life 
of our Saviour in her life. SISTER BAILY l[e]aves to mourn their 
loss a husband NELSON BAILY and 3 small children. Our hearts go 
out in sympathy to the bereaved husband for we know his heart is 
almost broken with the loss of the life of such a close friend 
and compapnion that was always so ready to share with him the 
troubles as well as the joys of life as none else is able to do. 
We would point to the Saviour of the world for He knows all our 
sorrows and will make all things work together for good to them 
that love the Lord, and may the guiding hand of our Saviour keep 
the children under the shadow of the wings of His mercy, so that 
no evil may come their way, and may they learn to put their trust 
in the one that has promised to be a Father to the orphan that 
they may all meet in that land where partings are not known and 
may her life and death be a steping stone to us all to that 
better land. Her body sleeps in the FLAT CREEK /46 CEMETARY 
there to await the sounding of the trumpet that shall awake the 
dead in Christ first.

SARAH J. GILLIS wife of HIRAM GILLIS was born Sept 29 1864 being 
64 years 10 months and 25 day old at he[r] death. She professed 
faith in Christ in the year 1883 and joined BIG IVY BAPTIST 
CHURCH and remained a faithful and consistent member until March 
the 4 1911 when she joined FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH and lived a 
consistent member until the day of her death. SISTER GILLIS de- 
parted this life Oct 25 1916 l[e]aving to mourn their loss a 
husband and 6 children. It pleased our Heavenly Father to keep 
her on bed of affliction for four years , but she bore her 
affliction through to the last with great patience. She was 
greatly loved by all who knew her. As we try to bow in humble 
submission to the will of Him that doeth all things well, we 
cannot but feel the death of one so beloved has left ach[e]s in 
our hearts that nothing but the healing balm of time can heal. 
SISTER GILLIS told her family and friends that she was ready and 
willing to depart this life , and launch out on the hope she had 
so much cherished during her Christian life, to meet her Heavenly 
Father where troubles and trials are at an end. /47 SISTER 
GILLIS body was laid to rest at CLARKS CHAPEL CEMETARY to await 
the sounding of the trumpet when the dead in Christ shall rise 

first.

In memory of SISTER RENA COLE. SISTER RENA COLE was born Jan 4

days . SISTER COLE better known as AUNT RENA was a member of this 
the FLAT CREEK CHURCH many years prior /62 to her death. We 
miss her. She lived a sunny life, and our hearts were made sad 
to hear of her death. She leaves a host of friends and rela- 
tives. May we all live the better life that we may hear the wel- 
come applause come ye blessed of my Father inherit the kingdom 
prepared for you from the foundation of the world, Then parting 
and sorrows will be no more. The remains of SISTER COLE were 
burried in the FLAT CREEK burying ground.

SISTER GLADYS HARRON, daughter of BROTHER and SISTER B. L. BARRON 

was born July 4 1904. At the age of 12 years & 6 month she pro- 
fessed faith in Christ and joined the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH, 
of which she was a member at the time of her death. She was 
always a consistant member, and was much loved by [all] who knew 
her. She was also a faithful and active member of both Sunday 
School and BYPD being a regular attendent. Possesing that loving 
and unselfish spirit, her first thoughts were always for others. 
The interest of her parents and loved ones were supreme , and her 
thoughts centered in making them cheerful and happy. On October 
13 1918 she contracted Influenza, and was ill for only a few 
days. Her suffering was intense, yet she bore it all patiently 
till death which relieved her suffering claimed her Oct 19, 1918. 
As the suffering form lay waiting /63 the summon her voice was 
lifted to God in song. With a firm voice she sang a familiar 
hymn which she loved so well and which the choir was singing at 
the time when she gave her life to and trusted in Jesus. Her 
last request was to the loved ones around her bed sid , to meet 
her in Heaven, to which she was soon going. She walked calmly 
through the valley of the shadow of death, fearing no evil, com- 
forted by the rod and staff of the good Shepherd. She was laid 
to rest in the LOCUST GROVE CEMETERY Sunday Oct 20 1918. While 
we are heart broken over the death of a dear member of our 
church, Sunday School, BYPU and WMS we are comforted with the 
thought that she is sweetly resting under the shade of the Tree 
of Life. We extend our deepest heartfelt sympathy to the 
bereaved family, You have said good bye, only for a little while. 
While we miss from our Sunday School and BYPU especially the 
cheerful face of our dear SISTER GLADYS, and know that a life in 
the bloom of young womanhood has been plucked from the vine , we 
know that her heart aches are o'er and acknowledge the wisdom of 
Him who doeth all things well.

Obituary of W. H. ROBINSON 
WILLIAM H ROBINSON son of GEORGE and POLLY ROBINSON was born 
March 23 1828. Died Jan 18 1919 Was married to SARAH J KEITH 
Oct 2 1848 at H. B. DEAVERS by REV REUBEN DEAVER. To this union 
was born ten children. Sometime after the death of his first 
wife he was married to MRS J. C. ANDERSON. She only lived a 
short while after they were married. The last three years of his 
life he lived with his son KELSEY ROBINSON. He professed relgion 
at the age of twelve years , on Sunday evening out in the grove by 
himself while his father and mother were at MIDDLE FORK CHURCH. 
He told them of his conversion /65 when they came home. He was 
Baptised into the fellowship of the FORK OF IVY CHURCH, not far 
from the time of its organization. Later he had his membership 
in the BULL CREEK CHURCH and also was a member of LAUREL BRANCH 
CHURCH. When he moved to HOMINY in BUNCOMBE COUNTY he helped to 
build a new church , and was a member of that church until he 
moved to FLAT CREEK. He then joined the FLAT CREEK CHURCH where 
he was a good and faithful member , the last thirty years of his 
life. He helped to build the present house of worship, and 
always in every place he lived, he was a liberal giver to the 
church. He was a regular attendant at church and Sunday School. 
He studied and had a good lesson as long as he could see to read . 
The last few years of his life his eyesight failed him, and he 
had to leave his reading off , but as long as he was able he was 
present at church and Sunday School. He was a good citizen, a 
good neighbor , a good husband , a good father , and last but not 
least a good member of the church for about eighty years. He 
lived to a good old age, being nin[e]ty years nine months and 25 
days old. He was laid to rest in the FLAT CREEK SEMETARY on the 
19 of Jan 1919. We the church of FLAT CREEK humbly bow in 
submission to the will of the Heavenly Father , knowing that he 
doeth all things well. "Blessed are the dead which die in the 
Lord from henceforth that they /66 may rest from their labors 
and their works do follow them." Rev 14; 13

On Feb 9, 1918 MRS JOE A SAMS, Daughter of MR and MRS ROBERT 
BLACKSTOCK, and, wife of Deacon J. H. SAMS of the FLAT CREEK 

BAPTIST CHORCH, passed away at her home. She was born May 16, 
1858 being 59 years 9 month and 23 days old at her death. Some 
time after her marriage she quietly professed faith in Christ at 
her home, and soon after, was united with the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST 
CHURCH, where she remained a loyal member until her departure. 
Quiet and unassuming by nature it was in the home circle that MRS 
SAMS strong Christian character shone most resplendently . Her 
life was devoted to her husband and children, and her church. 
For many years it was her hands that prepared the elements for 
the celebration of the Lords Supper. She instilled into the 
minds of her children that purity of thought and devotion to God 
that characterized her own life, and it was her joy to see all of 
them develop into Godly and useful women. She was kind and 
hospitable in her home , and much loved and respected by her many 
friends and neighbors . 

We the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH lament her death , and tender our 
sympathies to the friends and relatives of the deceased. The 
funeral services were conducted in the home by her Pastor, 
assisted by REV MCCRACKEN, and her body laid to rest in the 
BLACKSTOCK FAMILY SEMETERY. She is gone but not forgotten.

On the 4 day of Jan. 1919, the spirit of SISTER BETTY GARRISON 
passed to her home beyond this vale of tears. She united with 
FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH in the year 1910 and remained a member 
until the time of her death. It can truly be said that she was a 
faithful wife and mother. Her loving and kind disposition made 
her the central interest of her home. SISTER BETTY Daughter of 
MR and MRS HENRY ROBERTS, was born Jan 9, 1890 and was married 
March 1912 to MR HENRY GARRISON. She leaves behind a husband, 
three children, a father and mother, two sisters, and six 
brothers . She had won a host of friends for she possessed such 
an unselfish spirit that all who came in contact with her learned 
to love her. During December 1918 she fell a victim to Influenza 
and lived only a short time. In her death we miss her from our 
community, but we bow in humble submission to the will of God and 
pray that He may guide and keep her husband and children. The 
funeral services were conducted by REV. O. J. JONES and her body 
was laid to rest in the family cemetery near the home of her 
father in law, MR. THOMAS GARRISON'S to wait the resurrection 
morning . We extend our deepest sympathy to her husband and 
children and can only point them to the Dear Father who alone can 
give comfort to the bleeding heart of man and who can heal the 
wounds and bind the broken hearted .

BRO PHILIP N. BUCKNER was born Jan 19 1869. He possessed a dis- 
position and friendly spirit which won for him the respect and 
admiration of all with whom he came in contact. Having a desire 
to become a Christian in the fall of 1893 at the age of 24 years 
BRO BUCKNER accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour to whom he 
was ever true and faithful. It was in a revival meeting at BIG 
LAUREL BAPTIST CHURCH that he was converted under the preaching 
of REV A. J. SPRINKLE, who, in the /76 month of December 
following his conversion Baptized him into the membership of 
LOCUST GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH. 

On Feb 14 1894 he was married to MATTIE ROBERTS, Daughter of MR 
and MRS E. J. ROBERTS. To this union were born 8 children, Four 
boys and Four girls, Seven of whom are living. After a few years 
membership at LOCUST GROVE, he joined the church at PLEASANT 
GROVE, remaining there for a while, and about Seven years ago, 
joined PLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH, where he remained a 
consi[s]tent member till his death, due to rec[k]less driving of 
an automobile by a thoughtless young man on the 23 day of Oct 
1916. BRO BUCKNER was injured in such a way as it is believed 
hastened his death. From the time he received his injury till 
his death, he suffered much pain, yet his faith in God did not 
falter. Shortly before his Spirit was wafted away to God, like 
Jesus when he prayed for his enemies "Father forgive them for 
they know not what they do" BRO BUCKNER prayed for the young man 
who was responsible for his suffering during the past three 
years. His great ambition and desire was to see all of his 
children saved. Not only was he interested in the Salvation of 
his own family, but others as well. On Nov 16 1919 he departed 
this life, to enter the great beyond. He leaves a widow and 
Seven children whom he loved , and to whom goes our sympathy and 
prayers. His body was laid to rest in LOCUST GROVE CEMETERY, the 
funeral services being conducted by his Pastor, REV. W. T. 
BRADLEY, assisted by REV. J. M. PICKENS.

SISTER IOLA ROBINSON daughter of CALVIN and MINNIE WILLIAMS, was 

born May 21, 1884 and died Feb 18, 1920 at the age of 35 years, 9 
months , and 27 days . SISTER ROBINSON professed the Religion of 
our Saviour Jesus Christ Sept 1897, and was baptized into the 
fellowship of the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH , where she lived the 
remaining days of her life a close follower of him who she 
claimed as her redeemer. In 1904 she was married to CHARLES 
ROBINSON, and since that time has been a devoted Christian wife 
and mother. She leaves in BROTHER ROBINSONS care four children. 
May our Heavenly Father guide him in the ways of righteousness 
that he may be able to lead them in the right way . She was kind , 
loving, and good. We miss her and mourn her departure, but we 
feel our loss is Heavens gain. We sympathize with her family, 
and trust /79 that this stroke will prove a blessing to them. 
SISTER ROBINSONS remains were buried in the FLAT CREEK CEMETERY, 
where our Lord will keep watch till he comes for his own.

Obituary of MRS ELIZA MCDARIS 

on Nov 24th, 1920 our Heavenly Father called from our midst 
SISTER ELIZA MCDARIS, daughter of DR and MRS I. A. HARRIS, a 
member of the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH. We realize the fact 
that we have lost a faithful member, and while we miss her, we 
feel that our Heavenly Father has taken her into closer and 
sweeter fellowship with himself. We greatly mourn her departure, 
yet we rejoice in the hope which she had of her eternal gain. 
We extend unto the bereaved family our sympathy and love in this 
time of grief and sorrow in the loss of a devoted wife and 
mother, whos kind and loving words they will hear no more, 
praying that they will feel the comfort of His presence who doeth 
all things well, and bow in submission to his will. SISTER 
MCDARIS was born Aug 3, 1871 and lived 49 years 3 months and 21 
days. She was married to GEORGE MCDARIS Sept. 22, 1894. To this 
union were born six children. Three boys and three girls. At 
the age of 15 years SISTER MCDARIS professed faith in Christ and 
joined the METHODIST CHURCH at JUPITER. Later she joined the 
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH at JUPITER where she remained a member 
until she joined the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH and was Baptized 
Aug 3, 1919. She remained a faithful member of this church until 
her death.

Obituary of W. M. DAVIS 
BROTHER DAVIS was born April 12 1836 and died March 17, 1920, 
being 84 years one month and 5 days old. He joined the BAPTIST 
CHURCH at FLAGPOND TENNESSEE and was Baptized by REV LEROY SAMS. 
Later he united with the FLAT CREEK CHURCH by letter. He lived a 
good member till the day of his death. He was twice married, 1st 
to SELENA DULEY. To this union were born 11 children: 6 are 
dead and 5 living. His 2nd marriage was to REBECCA BRITTAIN, 
widow of GEORGE BRITTAIN, some 30 years ago. In the death of BRO 
DAVIS the community has lost a good citizen , his children a kind 
Father, and the church a devoted Christian but we feel sure that 
their loss is his eternal gain. Resolved 1st that we the FLAT 
CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH, extend our sympathy and respects to the 
bereft children, and that they look /89 to Him who doeth all 
things well , and 2nd That they sorrow not as others that have no 
hope; for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so 
them also which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with Him 1st Thes 
4; 14 Gone home to be with Jesus! His funeral was conducted by 
his Pastor W. T. BRADLEY, and he was laid to rest in the FLAT 
CREEK CEMETARY. 

Written Nov 5th 1921 by his Pastor W. T. BRADLEY, for the 
committee 



One of the oldest members of the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH passed 
away from us on May 30, 1921. This was SISTER REBECCA DAVIS. 
She had been a faithful servant of the Lord for many years , and 



389 
1921-1922 

in her home-going, Heaven is made richer, and the earth poorer. 
For some time before her death, she prayed earnestly for the Lord 
to take her to the home he had prepared for her, and although she 
was so anxious to go, she never failed to show that beautiful 
spirit of submissiveness that characterizes a true Christian. 
She lived an examplary life, and died a triumphant death. SISTER 
DAVIS professed religion and joined the BAPTIST CHURCH at OLD 
SALEM in HENDERSON CODNTY Jan. 18, 1845. Some time after she 
joined the church in HENDERSON COUNTY, she married MR GEORGE 
BRITTAIN and came to BUNCOMBE, and united with the FLAT CREEK 
BAPTIST CHURCH May 1, 1858, where she lived a consistent member 
until her death. She contributed of her means liberally to the 
support of her pastor, and the various objects of the church. 
/90 In the absence of the Pastor who was ill the funeral 
services were conducted by REV. JAMES PICKENS and her body was 
laid to rest in the FLAT CREEK CEMETERY to await the dawn of the 
beautiful Resurrection morn. "Oh! How sweet it will be in that 
beautiful land, so free from all sorrow and pain, With songs on 
our lips, and with harps in our hands, to meet one an-other 
again. "

WILLIAM L. ROBINSON was born August 26th 1841, he was the son of 
DEWITT and MARTHA ROBINSON. In 1855 when but Fourteen years of 
age he joined the MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH at ELK SHOALS in 
YANCEY CODNTY and about twenty seven years ago came to FLAT CREEK 
community, and later on united with the FLAT CREEK BAPTIST 
CHURCH. He was married to MISS MARY L. HOLCOMB also of ELK SHOAL 
YANCEY COUNTY. Twelve children were born to them, ten of whom 
are now living. His wife and two children preceded him in death. 
He was very loyal to his church, and when his health permitted 
was always in attendance , but for the last ten years had been an 
invalid and unable to attend services regularly. He was a young 
man of twenty years of age when the CIVIL WAR broke out and he 



393 
1922 

enlisted to defend his principles, and when he was nearly sixty 
years old saw some of the trials of our war with SPAIN in 1898. 
When he was nearly Eighty years old the WORLD WAR was declared, 
but he lived until the Armistice was signed and saw a few years 
of peace. Thus he lived through three wars and all through his 
life fought a good fight, and at last gained the victory, leaving 
the conflict to go to a better home in Heaven, March 1922. He 
was a good neighbor, always willing to help in sickness or 
trouble, and was a kind Father and will be missed greatly by all 
who were fortunate enough to know him. Surviving are his seven 
sons ROBERT, LUCIUS , JAMES, HOWARD, GILBERT, CHARLES, and WALTER 
and three daughters, MRS DULCENIE WILSON, MRS LIZZIE DEAVER and 
MRS ADDIE HEAD. /95

Appreciation 

Whereas REV W. T. BRADLEY, having been Pastor of the FLAT CREEK 

CHURCH, at various intervals, for a half century or perhaps a 
little more, and the various pastorates comprising some Twenty 
five or Thirty years; The last pastorate being nine consecutive 
years, up to his serious illness Three years ago, and then as 
supply for the last several months, and, Whereas, he has been 



404 
1924 

one, of the greatest; if not the greatest, human factors in the 
life and development of this church, and, having stood as firm as 
the hills about us, for the "Faith once delivered to the Saints," 
and as we believe, Having manifested a deeper interest in the 
well being of this church throug the passing years, than any 
other man. Labouring unceasingly, and untiringly, and much of 
the time on a very meager salary: which is proof of his devotion 
to the cause , and not to the price . He kept a watchful eye on 
the finances of the church, such as missions, and, all charitable 
objects, But never mentioning his salary, in public; or in 
private conversation. 

Resolved 

1. We commend BRO BRADLEY as a true, whole-hearted gospel 
preacher, full of love and faith. 

2. That we hereby assure him of our deepest interest, and 
earnest prayers in all the work of his future life. 

3 . We extend to BROTHER BRADLEY a warm welcome to our church 
and homes as often as he will worship with us or abide in 
our homes. /109 

4. That a copy of these resolutions be spread on our minutes, 
one sent to BRO BRADLEY, one to the BAPTIST MESSENGER and 
one to the BIBLICAL RECORDER for publication.

Resolutions of Respect 

It is with deepest regret that we, the members of FLAT CREEK 
BAPTIST CHURCH, accept the resignation of our beloved Pastor, REV 
L R WILLIAMS. Going to his new field our prayers and best wishes 
follow him. /150 We greatly appreciate the service he has 
rendered our church, and the noble work he has done among us. He 
has won our love and respect, and as a church we hold him in 
highest esteem. We shall miss him in our homes. In order to 
show our love and respect to BRO WILLIAMS, we enact the following 
resolutions . 

First, That as our pastor during the past three and one half 
years he has won our wincerest affections. 

Second, That we recognize in him an efficient and truly humble 
minister of the Gospel. 

Third, That his lovable Christian character shall always be an 
inspiration to us, and the splendid work he has done while our 
Pastor shall ever be held in grateful reinemberance . 
Fourth, That we desire an interest in his prayers; also we pro- 
mise an interest in our prayers for great good to be accomplished 
in the new and larger field to which he goes. 

Fifth, That we find our sentiment on this occasion so beautifully 
expressed in the grand old hymn, "Blest be the Tie that Binds." 
Sixth, That a copy of these resolutions be entered on our church 
records, and that one be given to BROTHER WILLIAMS.

***** 
ELISHA RICE was born in MADISON COUNTY July 5, 1870, and was 
called to his Heavenly home May 18, 1939. He became a Christian 
at about 15 years of age. Was married to HISS HESTER SPRINKLE 

Oct. 15, 1891 and to this union was born 11 children, 8 now

living and 3 dead. He has been a member of this church about 22 
years. BRO RICE spent the bigger part of his life praising and 
serving his God. His chief delight was in visiting the sick and 
helping the needy and the memory of his gentle loving spirit will 
ever live with those whom he came in contact- We thank God for 
his life. His heart was ever burdened for the unsaved and his 
evangelistic zeal led him many times to go to other churches to 
help in revival meetings. He had the most simple child like 
faith and seemed to ever live in the spirit of prayer. We miss 
him so much at Sunday School and church. He did more to keep 
alive old-time singing and the old-time songs than any we know, 
for ha sang as he prayed, with his whole heart-one of his many 
favorite songs was - "Nothing Between." We miss his singing, his 
hearty hand clasp, his prayers and his presence. In fact his 
going has left a vacancy which is felt by ail and which has 
brought to us a deep sense of sorrow. The huge floral offerings, 
the beautiful tastomonies , and the great crowd of people at his 
funeral bear witness to his greatness. To the bereaved family we 
offer our sympathy and pray that God may heal their broken hearts 
and that they will always strive to live near under the shadow of 

MR. J. E. CHANDLER Committee 



In memory of MR. A. S. BRIDGEWATER 

On April 18, 1939 God called from his earthly home to his Heav- 
enly home MR. A. S. BRIDGEWATER, a member of FLAT CREEK BAPTIST 
CHURCH. He joined this church during the summer of 1933, and was 
a regular attendant while he remained in the community. His 
sunny disposition won for him a host of friends and admirers. He 
was survived by his wife to whom he showed utmost devotion. It 
was while ministering to her during her illness that he contract- 
ed pneumonia and was removed to an ASHEVILLE hospital where he 
died within a few days. His body was laid to rest in the WEST 
MEMORIAL CEMETERY. 



1 . We the members of FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH can pay our tribute 
to the life of MRS. A. S. BRIDGEWATER and can register our 
gratitude to God for giving the world such a splendid example of 
Christian character but we can not measure her influence. 

2. She was a member of this church for about 6 years and was never 
able to attend regularly but was always intersted in the work of 
the church, supporting it with har tithe. 

3. She used her great knowledge of the Bible and her talent as a 
teacher. She especially stood firm on her convictions on 
reverence in the church. 

4. Hers was a refined gentle spirit - modest and unasuming . 



446 



She went home on May 27, 1939 at the age of 65 years to really 
experience for herself the beauties of Heaven. 

Her body was laid to rest beside that of her husband, her only 

near relation, who preceded her going about one month- in WEST 

MEMORIAL CEMETERY of WEAVERVILLE , the lot being a gift of MR. 
GLEN WEST. 

Many times during her illness she was inspired to write . Perhaps 
her master piece is that Poem which has been set to music and 
recorded and which she was privileged to hear sung many times on 
records and over the air - "How Beautiful Heaven Must Be" / 



In Loving Memory of LAURA WHITTINGTON CARSON 
On April 3, 1889 a daughter was born to MR & MRS JOHN WHITTING- 
TON, whome they named LAURA. Her kind and thoughtful ways won 
her many friends as she traveled along the journey of life - she 
was converted at an early age at FLAT CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH - she 
joined the church and was Baptised by the REV. ELISHA ALLISON, 
who was at that time Paster of FLAT CREEK CHURCH. 

She was a favorite of her paster, and on March 4, 1910 MR ALLISON 
presented her his Bible as a token of love. 

She was married to CHARLES A. CARSON May 23, 1912. To this union 
was born seven children who are all living. She was a devoted 
wife and a loving Mother. She trained her children from early 
childhood to go to church and reverance God. She rejoiced when 
her children excepted Jesus as their Saviour and united with the 
church. Although in the later years of her life she was unable 
to attend church regular she wanted her children to go and take 
an active part in church work. They as well as other church 
members were strengthned by her prayers . She loved her home and 
did all she could to make it happy but she was not selfish with 
her love for she also loved her neighbors and would always go to 
them in sickness and distress . She was very fond of flowers and 
spent much time working in them. She was a grate lover of music 
and one of her favorite songs was "Footprints of Jesus." We 
that knew her feel that she really walked in the footsteps of 
Jesus. 

When the Death Angel came Jan 11, 1939 and took LAURA from her 
home, family, and friends we feel that she went home to be with 
Jesus for ever. It is a grate consolation to her beloved famely 
to know that the hearts of so many kind friends beat in sympathy 
for the broken home and sad hearts who are left behind. May God 
stay close to the (husband) and children, and may I say it is the 
prayer of all who know them that they may live closer to the Lolc 
and strive to do more for him each day. 

The body of MRS. CARSON now rests in the FLAT CREEK CEMETRY 
awaiting the sound of the trumpet, when the Lord shall clame his 
children as his own. Respectfully Submitted

on scraps of paper.] 



In memory of SISTER MARGARET DANIEL who was borned and at 

an early hour on the morning of Thanksgiving Nov 26, 1925 God in 
his divine wisdom and infinite love deemed it best to remove from 
our midst to a life of joy and happiness. While it was a sad 
morning to us all, when we knew MARGARET was gone, yet her sweet 
spirit glided swiftly away to meet the Saviour in whom her refuge 
and faith was placed during her lingering illness. We believe 
she is singing with the redeemer over yonder, she loved music 

that is one / 

MARGARET DANIEL was Baptized Jan 7, .1917. 

A dear one from them has gone 

A voice they loved so well is stilled. 

A place is vacant in the home 

Which never can be filled. /

ARTICLES OF FAITH 

1st We believe thaT the Holy Scriptures are the words of God and the only rule of faith 
and practice. 

2nd We believe in one true and living God and that there are three represented in the God 
Head the Father Son and Holy Ghost and that these three are one equal in Power and 
Glory 

3rd We believe in the doctrine of original sin that all mankind being represented In Adam 
sinned in him and fell with him 

4th We believe in mans inability to recover from the fallen state he is in by nature and 
that the only means of recovery Is the Grace of God through Christ in regeneration by 
the Holy Spirit without the deeds of the law 

5th We believe that such only are real believers as endure to the end that their pei — 
severing attraction to Christ is the grand mark of distinction from superficial pro- 
fessors that a special providence watches over them and they are kept by the power of 
God through faith unto salvation 

6th We believe that scriptural baptism Is the immersion in water of a believer In Christ 
to show forth our faith in the crucified burr led and risen redeemer; that it is pre- 
requisite to church relations and the Lords Supper 

7th We believe that the Lords Supper is a symbol of Christs boddy and blood partaken of 
by the church in commemoration of his suffering and death /2 

8th We believe that no one has a right to administer the ordinance of Baptism except such 
as are regularly called and qualified there unto 

9th We believe in the doctrine of the resurection and a general judgment that the punish- 
ment of the wicked will be everlasting and the joys of the righteous Eternal. /3 



APPENDIX 28 463 



[See page 205.] 
CHURCH COVENANT 



Having been led as we believe by the spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as 
our Saviour and on the profession of faith having been baptised do joyfully enter Into 
covenant with one another as one boddy in Christ. 

We engage therefore by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk togather in Christ is to 
love to strive for the advancement of this church by the excercise of a Christian care 
and watchfulness over each other and faithfully warn, exhort, and admonish each other 
as occasion may require and contribute cheerfully to the support of the ministry the 
expenses of the church; the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel through 
all nations according to our several abilities. 

That we will not forsake the assembling of our selvs togather but will uphold the 
worship of God, and the ordinances of his house. 

That we will not neglect closet and family religion at home nor neglect the great duty 
of religiously training our children and those under our care for the servis of 
Christ. 

That as we are the salt of the earth we will seek divine aid to enable us to deny all 
ungodliness and every worldly lust and to walk circumspectly before the world that we 
may win the souls of men. 

That we will in all conditions even to death strive to live to the glory of him who 
hath called us from darkness into his marvelous light. /4 

And may the God of peace make us perfect in every good work through Jesus Christ to 
whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen. /5

APPENDIX 44 



[See page 330] 

ARTICLES OF FAITH 

1st We believe that the Holy Scripturs are the words of God and the onley road of Faith 
and Practice. 

2nd We believe In one true 4 living God and that there are three representd In the God 
Head, the Father Son & Holy Ghost and that these three are one Equal in Power and 
Glory. 



474 

APPENDIX 44 CONT. [See page 330.1 

3rd We believe In the doctrin of original Sin that all mankind being represented in Adam 
Sined In him and fell with him. 

4th We believe In mans inability to recover from the fallen State he is in by nature and 
that the only means of recovery is the Grace of God. Through Christ In regeneration 
by the holey Spirit without the deeds of the Law. 

5 We believe that such onley are real believers as endure to the end, that there Pei — 
severing attraction to Christ Is the grand mark of distinction from superficial Pro- 
fessors that a Special Providence watches over them and they are kept by the Power of 
God through faith unto Salvation. 

6th We believe that Scriptural baptisum is the immersion in water of a believer In Christ 
to show forth our faith in the crucified burried / and risen Redeemer: that it is 
Prerequisite to Church relations and the Lords Supper. 

7th We believe that the Lords Supper Is a Symbol of Christs boddy and blood, partaken of 
by the church In commemoration of his Suffering and death. 

8th We believe that no one has a right to administer the Ordinance of Baptism except such 
as are regularly called and qualified there unto. 

9th We believe In the doctrin of Resurection and a general Judgment that the Punishment 
of the wicked will be everlasting, and the Joys of the righteous Eternal. / 



WEND IX 45 

[See page 330.1 

CHURCH COVENANT 

Having been led as we believe by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our 
Saviour and on the Profession of Faith having been baptised to do Joyfully enter into 
covenant with one another as one boddy In Christ. 

We engage therefore by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together In Christs love to Strive 
for the advancement of this church by the exercise of a Christian care and watchful- 
ness over each other and faithfully warn exhort and admonish each other as occasion 
may require, and contribute cheerfully to the Support of the ministry the expense of 
the church the relief of the Poor & the Spread of the Gospel, through all nations 
according to our Several abilities. 

That we will not forsake the assembling of our selves together but will uphold the worship 
of God and the ordinance of his house. 

That we will not neglect closet and family religion at home nor neglect the great duty of 
religious training our children and those under our care for the Survis of Christ. / 

That as we are the Salt of the earth we will seek devlne aid to enable us to deny all ungod- 
liness and evry worldly lust and to walk circumspectly before the world that we may 
win the Souls of men. 

That we will in all conditions even to death strive to live to the glory of him who hath 
called us from darkness Into his marvllous light. 

And may the God of Peace make us Perfect In evry good work through Jesus Christ to whom be 
the glory for ever and ever. Amen! /

CHURCH HISTORY, WRITTEN OCT 12, 1930 

Flat Creek Baptist Church, (so called because of its geographical location in the Flat Creek 

Community) was constituted Nov 18, 1811 by Rev Stephen Morgan, who, according to tradition 

gave the Site, comprising Thirty Acres of land, (for the erection of a Church Edefice) of 

which about 8 acres remain the property of the church at this time. Tradition also tells us 

thta the 1st church building was made of hewn logs, and a Second a very common framed 

Structure. The present house, a wood Structure, was erected in the year 1899. A one room 

house Some Three or Four years ago Five Sunday SIclhool Rooms were built inside the church 

edifice, during the Pastorate of Rev L. R. Williams. 

On point of age Flat Creek stands 3rd In the Buncombe Association. 

She has been called the Mother Church north of Asheville, in the county. 

Various groups have gone out from her and constituted other churches. 

She contributed some 25 or 30 members to the Baptist Church in the town of Weaverville at 

its organization only a few years ago. 

Many deeply Spiritual Evangelistic campaigns have graced ttlhe career of a Hundred and 

nineteen years, from which sturdy dependable Christian men and women have gone out to bless 

the world. 



478 

APPENDIX 49 CONT. [See page 330.] 

Flat Creek is not a strong church financially but she gave to the 75 million fund a little 

more than $1 ,500. 

For lack of records we are unable to give even the names of her worthy Pastors for the 1st 

half century of her church life, except that of the Rev Stephen Morgan the organizer and 1st 

Pastor. Among those who served her faithfully later are, J. K. Conley, Robert Patterson, !_. 

W. Sams, W. T. Bradley, Joseph Miller, A.I. Justice, John A. Ammons, J. W. Hooker, S. M. 

Col I Is, W. C. McCarthy, S. J. Morgan, T. M. Honeycutt, /22 J. F. Sams, C. 0. Cole, T. C. 

King, W. W. Marr, E. Allison, W. B. SPrinkle, L. R. Williams, L. C. Roberts, and F. E. 

Clarke. 

On point of service perhaps Rev W. T. Bradley stands out preeminent, serving at various 

intervals through a period of 50 years, serving at least 30 years. 

The church celebrated Its One Hundredth Aniversary with a great occasion in 1911 during the 

Pastorate of Rev. E. Allison. /23 



APPENDIX 50 

[See page 330.1 

ARTICLES OF FAITH 

1st We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and the only road of faith 
and practice. 

2nd We believe in one true and living God, and that there are three represented in the 
God Head, The Father, Son an Holy Ghost, and that these three are one equal in Power 
and glory. 

3rd We believe in the doctrin of Original Sin that all mankind being represented in Adam, 
sined in him, and fell with him. 

4th We believe in mans inability to recover from the fallen state he is in by nature and 
that the only means of recovery Is the Grace of God through Christ in regeneration, 
by the Holy Spirit without the deeds of the law. 

5th We believe that such only are real believers as endure to the end. That their per- 
severing attraction to Christ is the grand mark of distinction from Superficial Pro- 
fessions. That a special Providence watches over them and they are kept by the Power 
of God through faith unto Salvation. 

6th We believe that Scriptural Baptism is the Immersion in water of a believer in Christ 
to show forth our faith In the crucified burried and risen Redeemer, that it is pre- 
requisite to church relations and the Lord's Supper. /I 

7th We believe that the Lords Supper is a symbol of Christ's body and blood partaken of 
by the church In commemoration of His suffering and death. 

8th We believe that no one has a right to administer the Ordinance of Baptism except such 
as are regularly called and qualified there unto. 

9th We believe In the doctrine of the Resurrection and a general Judgement. That the 
Punishment of the wicked will be everlasting and the Joys of the righteous Eter- 
nal. /2

APPENDIX 51 

[See page 330.] 

CHURCH COVENANT 

Having been led as we believe by the Spirit of God, to recleve the Lord Jesus Christ as our 
Saviour and on the profession of faith having been Baptised do joyfully enter Into 
covenant with one another as one body In Christ. 

We engage therefore by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together In Christ's love, to 

strive for the advancement of this church by the exercise of a Christian care and 

watchfulness over each other, and faithfully warn exort and admonish each other as 
occasion may require. 

And contribute cheerfully to the support of ministry, the expences of the church, the re- 
lief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations, according to our 
severa I abi 1 1 ties. 

That we will not forsake the assembling of oui — selves togather but will uphold the worship 
of God, and the Ordinances of His house. 

That we will not neglect closet and family religion at home, nor neglect the great duty of 
religiously training our children, and those under our care, for the service of 
Christ. 

That as we are the salt of the earth we will seek Divine aid to enable us to deny all un- 
godliness and every worldly lust, and to walk circumspectly before the world that we 
may win the Souls of men. 

That we will in all conditions even to death strive to live to the glory of him who hath 
called us from darkness into His marvelous light. /3 

And may the God of peace make us perfect In every good work through Jesus Christ to whom be 
the glory for Ever and Ever Amen. /A
